This Spring at Disney's Animal Kingdom, guests will get the chance to go backstage for a guided tour into the world of the Disney African Elephants. Animal Kingdom is home to North America's largest herd of African Elephants, and sine 1998 the scientists and dedicated animal experts working for Disney have been passionately committed to the conservation of this vulnerable species.

While all guests can see this magnificent herd on the Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom park. Lovers of these intelligent and emotional animals can learn more about their care and conservation by experiencing a new tour called "Caring for Giants."

During this hour-long tour, guests interact with animal specialists and Disney's African cultural representatives who will share inspiring stories of Disney's efforts to preserve the African elephant population. Guests will experience unparalleled views of the elephants, and be closer to them than in any of the other in-park experiences (between 80-100 feet away). Tours groups depart throughout the day between 10 AM and 4:30 PM.
